Unusual Vintage Pewter Ice Cream or Chocolate Mold Elephant Standing Marked 169
Vintage Pewter Ice Cream Mold Unusual Elephant Standing Marked 169. For Your Pewter Ice Cream Mold or Your Elephant Related Collection. Description: A very nice and rather unusual pewter ice cream mold in the form of an elephant standing on all four. The mold is made of two separate halves held together with a hinge. Each half has a thumb piece at the edge to allow you to pry the mold open once the ice cream hardens. The inside of the mold shows a clean and smooth design on both halves. The inside of the mold shows the shiny design of the elephant standing with its large ears being obvious. It also shows the head of the elephant with its eyes and trunk. The mold also shows a textured surface to mimic the skin of the animal as well as the toes in the bottom of its legs. The design shows great details and looks rather nice. It is marked with the number 169 on the outside. The piece has a flat base to stand on. The two halves do not close tightly as they should and there is a space between them, which can be seen in the photos. Of course you would have to hold the two halves together tightly before you cool it, probably with a wire. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description. Date: Uncertain but most likely early to mid 20th century. Size: The base measures 3 1/4″ by 2″ and the piece is 2 7/8 high. The piece weighs almost 13 ounces. Marks: Marked with the number169 on the exterior of one of the two halves. It has no other markings. Distinguishing Characteristics – Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice and rather unusual piece to be used to make ice cream or candy treats. We have been collecting and dealing in these molds for many years and this is the first time we see this shape. It is really very interesting and would make a great addition to your collection. Condition: It is in relatively good condition. The piece does not close very well and leaves an open space in the front between the two halves. We are not certain what happened but it maybe that the edges at the front of both halves were damaged. This can be seen in photos. Other than that the piece is fine, still fits together relatively well and would probably need to be held together with a wire or so to ensure that it stays properly aligned when making ice cream or candy. Otherwise it would display just fine in your collection. The inside is clean and the design is intact and looks great. The piece has some general wear commensurate with its age and utilitarian function. The outside is soiled, has scratches, dings, and dust which could probably benefit from a good cleaning, but we leave that to discretion of the next owner. Be that as it may, the piece is still great looking and intact. Please see photo for additional condition information. We guarantee the authenticity, description and condition of the items we sell.
